NW told the local journos he will talk too all the players tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday.

he said he will then hold a press conference on Wednesday with the local journos to confirm whose going and whose staying.

Have a feeling the staying list could be pretty short going by how he's acting!

Can we buy Peterboroughs scouting team instead?

HES 20 YEARS OLD.  I've said this so many times, the majority of players his age haven't even made a first team appearance yet and are still developing in the underage groups or in the lower divi

Has Fry been sold yet? 😉 It is mad seeing how different Fry is viewed compared to last season through some people's eyes. Similar to Spence this season, if Spence stays and has a quality sea

Have a feeling this could be a very bad way of doing things, too.

Part 1: Warnock to journos
"Hey everyone, all these players are available, we don't want them here next season."

Part 2: Summer transfer window
"What do you mean you're only offering a tenth of their market value?"

Part 3: Transfer window is closed
"Oh hey guys, I guess you're still here after the window is shut."

Part 4: End of 2021/22 season
"I know we finished 16th but really, when you don't have any strikers, midfielders, defenders or goalkeepers, we did quite well really, you get me?"

 I'm guessing he'll just be talking about the loanees and out of contracters when he says who'll be staying/going

@boro-unger yeah that is impression is i got. I certainly dont think he going to sit there and go through each individual one by one and confirm if they are part of his plans.

I expect him to discuss Bettinelli, Archer, Johnson, Kebano, Bolasie and Mendez-Laing.

Questions regarding under contract players I think he will rightly be coy on

Maybe in the minority but I think he has been over hyped and has yet still to learn when to pass the ball to a team mate.

 

You talking about Bolasie? 😉

Today was a bad day at the office - maybe a very bad day.

I've been here before, a time or three !!  Watching the Boro lose 0-4 at Ayresome was a salutary lesson on the first match of the season in 1953

I'll not be watching tonight to see how bad we were.  I always omit viewing again the bad days.

We seem to forget that last season was awful and Warnock saved us.  We've finished 10th

Boro fans have usually been the same - he's a great player - he's rubbish.  Often its the same player and two weeks apart

My advice would be relax have a good few weeks off, recharge the Boro batteries and see what next year brings

Of course I'm disappointed ............   ..........   but I'm sat wondering if I might go to Plymouth for a couple of games in July

Above all keep smiling

It’s not much of a story but thought it would at least be of interest to some on here. The 72 reporting we have been scouting in Denmark and Belgium

I'm just happy we're scouting at all! 😁 Same old story that you can usually find similar or better quality players for your money in Europe.

That is not a quote I dont think? A quote would not start with “Warnock has discussed....”.
 

I think that is just lazy Journalism by EG and also Lazy journalism by them in not listing all the core players who clearly form part of squad next season.

well who the else said it hahah ? those words came from his mouth regarding the players

Junior hoilett expected to join us on a free 

The last winger we signed after playing with Warnock at Cardiff turned out so well... 

Another 31 year old looking a last pay day who hasn't performed in the last couple of years. Couldn't get into an average Cardiff team this season. 

So utterly unimaginative, like everything else this club does. 

(If it goes through of course)

    • One big plus at least Scotland players don't have far to travel home, and up and down the pubs and bars in Scotland they'll be able to talk about the mighty nil nil with England for years to come.
    • Yes me too I was hoping for a last gasp equaliser, I'm hoping that the team are brilliant next game and prove me wrong, but I just feel the other teams have players who can produce that bit of individual brilliance needed, we look stifled and devoid of ideas to create chances. I had high hopes before the tournament started but the manager gives me no confidence, the most inform fullback we have in the squad is Chillwell good defender and fast going forward, the striker  with the best heading ability is Calvert Lewin outstanding season for Everton, neither have had a look in, narrow minded manager who has Plan A and nothing more this squad deserves much better.  
    • Has he whinged about Villa, Liverpool and West Ham like? I'm pretty sure he's spoken about West Ham at least and had nothing but positive things to say about his time there. In comparison with Karanka, he had plenty of good to say about Big Sam too, if I remember rightly. And in his situation, would you feel aggrieved or would you sit there after over a decade's worth of combined service to a club and think "At least I got that chance"? It's a two way street and it always has been with Downing. When he's been here, he's always worked hard and at least earned the chance to justify us keeping him around. He's never downed tools like Braithwaite did, for example. The season Braithwaite signed, Downing was pushed into the under-23s by Monk, they tried to force him out the club and sell to Birmingham and he worked his way back into the team. That same player got demonised as if he was a catalyst for Karanka's departure, got booed by his own fans and still came back trying to fight for the cause. It doesn't matter if I'd been in my job for 1 year or 20, if I made agreements with someone to extend a contract and they then backed out when it suited them and left me in the lurch, I'd be pretty bloody annoyed about it. If he wants to talk about that, he has the right and players who are hung out to dry by clubs don't have any reason to shirk talking about it. Especially with the situation here, where he didn't just have a promise made to him, he made a decision to waive a contractual agreement previously made in part so he would have his future worked out. We got what we wanted in the short term and long term and Downing was forced to leave. How can anyone possibly look at that level of unprofessional behaviour by the club and still think Downing's the problem is completely beyond me. It just seems to be a long term hatchet job continued on from a time when everyone blamed Downing for Karanka nearly leaving the first time and actually leaving eventually. Mixed in with the fact people thought Downing wasn't a good player which for some reason created value judgements of him as a person. People already don't like him and see him in one way so aren't open to the idea that he's in the right. The comment above, "don't get me started" on him, I have to wonder where that comes from when everything Downing says matches up to the absolute shittery we see at the top level of our club every year and especially since Karanka and Orta left.
    • dont get me started on Downing.
    • @wilsoncgp agree with everything you said. Just seems to me that he loves to whinge about how each club dealt with him “unprofessionally” upon leaving them. I have no doubt Boro did probably mess him about in Pulis final yesr but he needs to weigh that off woth how much good our club has done for him over the years, especially the owner who he also slagged off in that Schwarzer interview In every interview I read of his he seems to give of the vibe of there being a sense of self-entitlement with him. Just my opinion and others might see him differently
